Emergency Communications
Assuming power is available, in the case of an emergency we will try to keep our Facebook and Twitter sites updated frequently and we will also utilize our "Notify Me" list serve tool. In the "Notify Me" menu, sign up for Public Safety and Health announcements in the Alert Center.

During catastrophic events such as a major earthquake, we may work with local media and utilize posting and gathering sites in the city such as the Recreation Pavilion (5303 228th Street SW), Post Office (23210 57th Avenue W), Civic Center/Library (23300 58th Avenue W), schools, shopping centers and churches.
